"Crow is the animated stench of death, the archaic lineage of grief, the mushy, slipperiness of your internal organs. Crow is what fills every corner of your life when you are experiencing loss. I love this book. I love crow. KRACAW!

“This novel in verse begins with the death of a wife and mother told through the eyes of her husband, her two sons, and, unexpectedly, a crow. Crow -- one part trickster-god, one part guardian, and wholly unpredictable -- descends upon this fractured family to watch over them in their grief and guide them back to the land of the living. Porter's phrases and descriptions startled me with their clarity, and undid me with their simple and unexpected poignancy.”
